    40+ Years of Talking...and Still Going Strong!

    I've read that it's common for children to talk in their sleep.  I can't remember the percentage, but it seems like it was something like 40% or so.  It's much less common for adolescents and even more uncommon for adults to talk in their sleep.  I seem to remember...

    How About Sleep Singing

    My son does this.  He sleeps with the radio on all night and when a song comes on that he loves - he sings in his sleep with it.  I don't know if I talk in my sleep - nobody has ever mentioned it. So, I must just snore lightly.  LOL

    I Sometimes Talk When I Sleep

    How do I know I talk when I sleep?  I found myself talking while waking up so I reasoned I must've been talking in my sleep.  Also when I was in a dormitory someone would say shut up.   Even when I was a kid my brother would wake me up just to tell me to shut up.
